Weekend Box Office: Other Guys On Top, Inception Holds Strong, Step Up Falls Down

View Chris Kavan's Profile

After three weeks on top of the box office, Inception was finally felled by the resurgence of the buddy-cop movie. With $35.6 million, The Other Guys made an impressive debut. It was the highest grossing movie for Will Ferrell since Talladega Nights.

Despite falling to #2, Inception dropped only 32.3% and made an estimated $18.6 million. Its total stands a couple million shy of $230 and moves it to the 6th highest grossing film of the year.

Step Up 3D premiered in 3rd place with $15.5 million. The total is the lowest for the film series, as the second film earned $18.9 million and the original over $20 million. Things would have been worse if not for 3D, as over 80% of the film's receipts came from the 3D showings.

Taking a nosedive in its second week was the comedy Dinner for Schmucks. Losing roughly 55% of its audience, it rounded out the top five earning $10.5 million. In fourth place was the Angelina Jolie espionage action flick Salt with $11.1 million.

Cracking the top ten for the first time was The Kids Are All Right. Riding good word of mouth and critical buzz, the film Added $2.6 million and is sitting at $14 million. With an estimated $4 million budget, it may be the most financial sound picture in the top 10.

In limited release, Get Low is showing good signs as well. Opening to a handful of theaters, and adding 22 new locations, the film jumped 165.4% in attendance and had nearly $9,000 per-theater average. With a $7 million budget, the film should enjoy a healthy gross as well.
